to that report in a new hour of "america live." hi, everybody, i'm megyn kelly. we go to mike emanuel at the white house. all right, mike, some economists out in cambridge, massachusetts, decided that the recession ended in june of '09. what does president obama say? >> reporter: well, he didn't seem overly dazzled, megyn, because he recognizes for millions of americans who are out of work, looking for work or underemployed that the suffering is still ongoing, they're still dealing with the realities of the recession. so he seemed to try to call for a little bit of patience. here's more from the president a short time ago. >> we have put forward proposals, for example, to accelerate investment here in the united states instead of overseas in research and development and plants and equipment that could put people back to work. so there are a lot of plans in place that can make improvement, but it's slow and steady as opposed to the kind of quick fix that i think a lot of people would like to see. >> reporter: the president insists he is not anti-business, not anti-wall street. he under

correspondent mike emanuel is here in new york following the president's every move an every word, mike. what kind of strikes you about what he had to say today? >> reporter: i was struck by how much he talked about middle east peace. many american presidents have tried for middle east peace and that's been very elusive, so the president raeg making the case that we can do the same old same old when it comes to the palestinians and israel, be back here making big speeches once again, and so he spent a lot of his focus on that. also struck me, the talk about the global economy, what he's tried to do to help rescue the global economy. obviously that's a great concern around the world. jenna: it's interesting, ahead of the protests we're expecting in new york city about iran. what do we expect to hear next from the president? he has a few speeches and a few things to take care of in new york. >> he has a key bilateral with the chinese premiere so we can expect talk about north korea to come you, the global economy. the two nations, u.s. and china, have differences sometimes over economic issues

like to pursue the position of mayor of chicago, our own mike emanuel is live in our new york newsroom with the latest details. >> reporter: people life talked to say that's possible he could leave as early as next month. leaving the chief of staff position, there's never a good time for that, but the bottom line, sources i've talked to, say he needs to make his decision, if he decides to go, then the white house will move quickly to put in an interim chief of staff, the name i'm hearing is peter rouse, somebody who's an old hand on capitol hill, somebody they've nicknamed the 101st senator. he would be the person to come in. as for emanuel's desire to run for mayor of chicago, he has labeled it his dream job, i have been told that he has $1.2 million left in his federal campaign account, so he doesn't have some of the fundraising pressures that perhaps other candidates who might want to run for mayor do have, but ultimately, the window is going to be tight in terms of getting out of his very, very demanding day job and running for mayor of chicago. so if he decides to go forward, it w
